Mount Vsevidof (/ˌvɪzəˈviːdɒf/ or /vəˈʃeɪvɨdɒf/) is a stratovolcano in the U.S. state of Alaska. Its summit is the highest point on Umnak Island, one of the eastern Aleutian Islands. Its symmetrical cone rises abruptly from its surroundings. Its most recent eruption was caused by an earthquake on March 9, 1957. The mountain erupted on March 11, 1957, and the eruption ended the next day.
Obviously global warming and the gay rights plight are responsible for this latest quake. /s
I bet they’ve got a Confederate Flag too!

Well, it IS the South... Southern Alaska that is.
I blame fracking.
Interesting. That was right about the time my cat was acting spooked — and we’re a loooong way from there.
Those are big enough to get your attention!
Northridge and Sylmar were about that size and they were damned scary.
Aleutian Megathrust would make a great band name. Just sayin’.
lol...yes it would!
My cat too. Abouts where you at?
